Here's a new submission from St. Michael-Eppan, and a great value. The 2021 Alto Adige Pinot Grigio Fallwind is lean and fresh with an easy, rather neutral bouquet. You will recognize apple, quince, lemon and dried flower. The wine's lean-bodied approach and its fresh acidity make this a perfect partner to fried calamari. There is some flinty ash or crushed stone on the close. It ages in stainless steel (60%) and large oak casks (40%). The name Fallwind comes from the cold air that falls down the face of the mountains at sunset.
